Acting sustainably is of central importance to Hamburg Süd – in the interests of the environment, society, and our employees.

Shared commitment towards a sustainable future

Acting sustainably is of central importance to Hamburg Süd. Our goal is to decarbonise the world's supply chains to enable sustainable trade for a growing world. We would like to minimise the negative impact of our actions by aligning our business activities with the interests of the environment, our employees and our customers.

Hamburg Süd is part of Maersk, one of the global leaders in logistics. Because all assets are deployed via a shared equipment pool, Hamburg Süd and Maersk are jointly pursuing sustainability goals. This especially holds true regarding ecological issues, such as climate protection. Our actions are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals as set up by the United Nations

Our ESG strategy

Our ESG strategy is centered around our three core commitments and 14 material categories within the environmental, social and governance (ESG) dimensions where we can create the greatest positive impact for the world. We continuously measure and report on our progress against set targets for each of the 14 categories we work on.

Sustainability Report

In addition, the shared sustainability goals of Maersk and Hamburg Süd are incorporated into all due diligence processes. Our business partners are continually monitored to determine if they are complying with the code of conduct we have set forth.
